Towards a scarcity of care? Tensions and contradictions in transnational elderly care systems in central and eastern Europe

To be cared for is an essential physical and emotional need, not only for people individually, but also for societies. For several decades, however, multiple processes of stagnating state services, increasing marketisation of care, intensifying competition for services, demographic aging and longer-term institutional changes have led to a situation in which care has become a »scarce commodity«. As a result of these changes a competitive care market has developed globally, largely built on migrant labour.

What are the reasons behind care migration and what kind of trends can be observed currently on the European care market? Under what kind of conditions do migrant workers carry out their work and what is the role of states and private actors such as employment agencies in defining these conditions? How does the marketisation of care affect inequalities on the transnational level?

The authors of the volume Towards a scarcity of care? Tensions and contradictions in transnational elderly care systems in central and eastern Europe aim at elaborating on these and similar issues. The volume was  edited by Noémi Katona and Attila Melegh.
